    My Wii has been softmodded for 5 years and I've never had any trouble with it before.

    Been able to troubleshoot any problem, including bricks.

    I didn't install/change anything, one day it just started doing this.

    The system menu boots, makes the chimey jingle sound, then freezes with a loud buzzing sound.

    Is there a dol I can run from SD or something, to maybe try restoring cIOS packages to their defaults?

    The only screen I can get to work is the BootMii screen...

    woa.. maybe she or someone accidentally pressed keys...

    can you reach priiloader? and open homebrew channel? if you can put homebrew channel to work you can try to install the wads again

    edit: if you can, please use syscheck http://www.hacksden.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=149

    and post here the results (it will create a file on sd card)

    It boots to Priiloader, but HBC doesn't load. The Wii power light stays on, but the Wiimote disconnects immediately, and I think it stops sending a video feed to the tv as well!

    on priiloader there is "laod\install file" use that to launch syscheck (put syscheck on the sd card)

    check if it boots..

    do you remember the system version and region the wii had?

    I think it was 4.2U. Syscheck doesn't work (just says "failed to load!", doesn't really seem to try loading it either, error returns pretty much immediately)

    I think it seems like it's toast. Time to get a WiiU, I guess! Thanks for trying to help, though. I've been a lurker here for years, never posted though. This is like the best forum.

    well, try to launch http://filetrip.net/wii-downloads/homebrew/download-multi-mod-manager-134-f13015.html
    multimod manager (its the best wad installer IMO), or another wad installer

    if you can make a wad installer work, you can install the IOS again and probably fix it. give it a try!

    if you manage to get a wad installer to work. i would love to help...

    The weird thing is, the screen that the Wii boots to before loading the system menu, the one that says press the A button, that works fine. And when the system menu boots, before it freezes, all my content is there, and the wii mote works for a second. It seems like it has to be that I accidentally overwrote some ios the system menu needs.

    is there something i have to do to the file structure of a dol on the sd card to get it to boot from priiloader? could that be the problem? i've never had to load anything through priiloader, so it could be something preliminary I'm missing?

    nope you just have to put it in the same folder as others. you can also try with a 2gb or less sd card but i dont think it will help...

    Yeah, it's not actually a big deal. The worst part of it is that my girlfriend was playing Chrono Trigger, and her save file is gone now. She was at the end of the game, too.
